investments for the future of our nation and its citizens. americans are tired of watching their government lurch from one crisis to the next. the congressional black caucus offers a sincere credible path towards a long-term solution which creates jobs, expands the middle class, honors our commitment to seniors by preserving medicare and protecting medicaid and addresses our budgetary deficits and debt responsibly. these goals are achievable. but be clear, the ryan budget will not get us there. it is not the path to the nation's collective prosperity. it does not move us forward. democrats and members of the congressional black caucus propose that we move america forward. i thank you for the opportunity to address these important issues. and i yield back. mr. horsford: thank you, congresswoman beatty. we appreciate your leadership and hard work. can i confirm on our remaining time please? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman has 11 minutes remaining. mr. horsford: for the remaining time, i would like to turn to two of our members on the budget committee, people who have heard firsthand ab
and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is everybody else talked about let's just stick it to the rich. let's raise taxes trillions of dollars. let's go and stick it to special interests like people who he provide gasoline at the pump. to raise taxes on oil companies. ladies and gentlemen, every time you raise taxes, you raise prices. and every time you race -- raise prices the consumer has to pay more for it. these are the ideas that make america less able to be

of the choice that was made to put in combined sewer systems. narrator: in 1994, the government adopted a combined sewer overflow policy to reduce csos nationwide. cities with combined sewer overflows now face an enforcement action called a consent decree. under a consent decree, a city must reduce pollution levels significantly within a strict time frame or face heavy fines. in 1960, the combined sewer overflows were a perfectly legitimate way of dealing with sewers. woman: the mind set was that, what did it matter if we were sending our waste downstream? water was a good conveyance for pollution. man: sewer systems are installed to reduce public health problems. now what you're doing is transferring the problem, you're transferring it to downstream cities. in addition, cities and towns above pittsburgh were doing the same thing. and then they were affecting the water intakes of pittsburgh. 90% of this region gets its drinking water from those same rivers that we have overflows occurring. hecht: we have sewage overflow with as little as 1/10" inch of rain. and our average storm here is
